198Get Out of Your Own Way
Talks given from 7/4/76 to 2/5/76, Darshan Diary, 25 Chapters, Year Published : 1977
Content : [To a sannyasin, a film-producer who is returning to the States, Osho said that meditation could be introduced to many people through the medium of film and television…. ] Books are very old media. The days for books are gone. People don’t have that much time to read, because reading is active; you have to do something. Television is perfectly okay. You have nothing to do; you simply sit and see…
199God Is Not For Sale
Talks given from 12/10/76 to 7/11/76, Darshan Diary, 26 Chapters, Year Published : 1978
Content : Prem means love, and tyagi means renunciation. Tyagi means one who has renounced — love and renunciation. I make a special condition for renunciation — and that is love. A man can renounce out of anger, a man can renounce out of hatred, a man can renounce out of frustration… but then it is meaningless. Unless you renounce out of love, renunciation is of no use. If you renounce, and there is no love in your renunciation, it is a struggle. If there is love, it is a surrender…
200God’s Got a Thing About you
Talks given from 1/9/78 to 30/9/78, Darshan Diary, 30 Chapters, Year Published : 1984
Content : Deva means divine, aikanta means aloneness. Self-knowledge is possible only in deep aloneness. Ordinarily whatever we know about ourselves is the opinion of others. They say “You are good” and we think we are good. They say “You are beautiful” and we think we are beautiful. They say you are bad or ugly… whatsoever people say about us we go on collecting. That becomes our self-identity. It is utterly false because nobody else can know you, can know who you are, except you yourself. Whatsoever they know are only aspects, and those aspects are very superficial. Whatsoever they know are only momentary moods; they cannot penetrate your center. Not even your lover can penetrate to the very core of your being. There you are utterly alone, and only there will you come to know who you are…
201The Great Nothing
Talks given from 19/9/76 to 11/10/76, Darshan Diary, 23 Chapters, Year Published : 1978
Content : [A sannyasin who is leaving says: I am facing new things which I have not faced before.] Very good. This new space is your reality. Whatsoever you have known up to now was not really you. It was the identity given by others — the parents, the society, the world. Now you are coming to encounter yourself…
